Music


I love, love, love, love all my politician friends. Hell, I didn’t know I had so many. It turns out, all of my friends are majoring in political science and are doing their best to share their knowledge on the health care bill. Ah, god bless them, holding to their values and morals as if they’re on a sinking ship, you’ve got to love them.

So. It’s been a while. Should I put on some mood music? Huh? How about a little white wine? Yeah, that sounds about right.
FIRST!
Watch Breaking Bad. Just do it. It’s about meth, cancer, and family: everything you need in a tv show.
SECOND!
I don’t have much to update you on. Truth be told, if you want to see what I find interesting, I’ve got links to my daily sites all in the sidebar. Click over there, you won’t be disappointed, they’re all quality sites. Now, I will be giving a review of Up in the Air tomorrow probably. I don’t normally like to give reviews, because, well I’m not qualified to give them. I’m no expert in any field, so…it’ll probably be that I’ll give you my thoughts on it.

Spike Jonze’s short, I’m Here, is online.I’m Here The site only gives out 700 viewings a day, so don’t forget to check back the next day if you don’t get a “ticket.” I still haven’t seen it yet, so I can’t tell you too much about it.

Esquire has a ton of new music recommendations on its site. Esquire. They list a ton of bands from SXSW and, “songs that every man should be listening to.”

Give me tattoo recommendations.

It’s been a while. Look, don’t get mad. It’s gravy, baby. And that is probably the worst thing that I’ve ever typed. It’s been a while, but I’ve been busy and I’m sure the same goes for you.
FIRST!

Did I tell you I love the blues? Oh, I didn’t. Silly me. I love the blues.
SECOND!
I finally, finally caught up on Dexter. I started watching season 4 months ago, but I just now remembered to finish it. I remember seeing posts on Facebook about how bad the ending is. I won’t post any spoilers, but the writers on Dexter are absolutely brilliant. So, I guess…this is a recommendation, go watch Dexter. Start at the beginning.
THIRD!
So, the God of War III demo dropped last night on PSN. It’s beautiful and awesome. But I’m more excited about the Just Cause 2 demo coming next week

Know any good blues? Let me know

I hate Facebook. Up and down, I see no point for it. So, here’s the deal. More than likely, I’ll be deleting my Facebook. That means if you want to talk to me, you actually have to talk to me. If I delete it, I’ll put up my number and my email. Hopefully, this will help reintroduce some person-to-person interaction that has been sucked away by Facebook.

Also, I’m going to start doing a little thing at the end of each post and I hope the rest of the C//R writers follow along with me. Tycho (Jerry, in reality, I believe) puts song lyrics after the end of each post. I always have fun reading them and trying to figure out what it’s from. So, I’m going to start doing the same.

Floating in my mind, no sail

So, KN posted this about a year ago and I just started listening to it again: Ghostly Swim

It’s an Adult Swim mixtape and it’s actually pretty good. I doubt most of you will recognize any of the artists on it, but that really shouldn’t stop you from listening to it. I’d say, it’s electronic, not techno. You won’t find any club jams, which is a good thing, but you will find a lot of mellow, electronic beats. Aside from Kid Cudi, Ghostly Swim has been on repeat for me.

Awesome video, awesome song.

This post will be one of five ongoing posts to describe my top five favorite bands. I feel like sharing my interests with CR’s viewers and in turn searching those interests of our viewers.

The first and foremost of my top five favorite bands is The Warlocks.

The band consists of the following musicians:
Bobby Hecksher – Vocals, Guitar, Keys
John Christian Rees – Guitar
Ryan McBride – Guitar
Jenny Frazer- Bass
Jana Suzanne Risher – Bass
Bob Mustachio – Drums

These artists have created some of the most creative works of art I’ve ever experienced. Most of their music is “thick and dreamy” as drummer Bob Mustachio likes to describe, but The Warlocks also create some heavy deavy death tones like Angry Demons and Stickman Blues.

Their best album is easily The Pheonix Album. I would almost consider it to be like their greatest hits album. Anyways, The Warlocks are hypnotic because they open songs with overpowering fuzz, feedback and bass, which shatters your emotional barrier. Afterwards they begin to invade your senses with subtle drones and high tone guitar rings then they touch your heart and soul with wicked lyrics and beautiful keyboards.

It’s extremely difficult to fully describe a band as magnificent as The Warlocks. They rock my inner core and take me from reality. When I listen to music I don’t like it because it’s catchy or has super fast and cool guitar solos. I LOVE music because I can relate to the song and connect the music to an experience.

Music is my pacemaker and The Warlocks are one of the few bands that always short it out.

I can’t remember how I stumbled across this video, it was probably KN ( Kitsune Noir)

But it is so trippy and awesome, that I can’t get enough of it. I know it’s quite old, but in the off case you haven’t seen it, here you go.

Also, I’m listening to their album with my new headphones (Sony MDR 7506s) and it sounds amazing. If you don’t have over the ear, closed headphones, I’d recommend picking some up. The sound quality in these is superior than any in-ear buds I’ve tried.
